Heslerton under-10s kicked off the second half of their season with a solid 3-1 home win against a rapidly improving Ayton Athletic outfit.

Boosted by an early goal from Thomas Allan, the hosts (pictured right in blue kit) were soon into their passing, with Charlie Thompson linking well with Allan for a neatly taken second.

Despite the two-goal cushion it was Ayton who started to dominate play, breaking down an overworked Heslerton midfield, to force a series of corners, which eventually led to the ball being bundled over the line after a tense scramble.

The introduction of Alex Troop helped get the home side back in the game, as he crossed for man of the match Sam Owen to sweep home from the edge of the box.

With the two-goal lead restored Heslerton closed out the game, but not before the visitors had forced a stunning save from Josh Dolan.

Heslerton under-13s suffered a 16-2 defeat at home to league leaders Kirkby.

The home side scored both their goals after the break, with cracking efforts from Conor Miles and Briony Fawcett.

Heslerton under-16s slipped to a 3-1 home loss against Scholes Park Raiders.

The villagers made a stunning start thanks to a Johnny Reed effort.

However Scholes came back with three goals to secure the win.

Man of the match for Heslerton was Luke Smith.

Heslerton under-sevens turned on the style when they travelled to Thornton Dale on Sunday morning in the Scarborough Minor League.

Harry Richardson was playing in goal for the visitors and Tommy Palmer and Lincon Welburn lined up in defence.

Max Taylor-Barber lined up in midfield alongside Matthew Moss with Charlie Swiers and Rio Howden as strikers.

Heslerton pressed straight from the off and two sublime goals from Swiers saw them go in at the break in front.

Jake Allardice came on replacing Taylor-Barber.

Heslerton continued to dominate and Swiers grabbed two more along with Howden to finish off a very impressive display for the Blues.

In the second game Heslerton youngsters Malachey Kendrew, Oscar Webb, Luke Allardice, Sam Taylor-Barber and debutant Josh Cass all took to the field in a battling display.

Pickering Town under-12s put in a cracking performance to win 7-0 at Flixton.

Tom Wright headed the seventh from a corner.

Jack Balderson gave a strong performance in the middle of the park for Town.

Thornton Dale under-14s won 8-2 at home to Scholes Park.
